After several misguided years, Tony renewed his interest in paddling in 2006 by aiming to complete the Hawkesbury Classic. Something about mid-life … He has been on the board of management of PaddleNSW since its inception in 2008, and keen to see PaddleNSW grow to the all-encompassing paddlers association that the initial philosophy promised.
I live for paddling - but definitely NOT for racing and competition, unless it's against a whitewater river! I keep the Board reminded about all things recreational - especially if it involves touring, camping and lots of whitewater. Coming to paddling and the River Canoe Club when the kids could barely walk taught us all to either paddle well or drown.

His earliest involvement in paddle sports was in a home made K2 paddling down parts of the Darling River (around Bourke) at the age of about 11.
